Dive In To Earth Day Announcement

Tens of thousands of ocean lovers from around the world will celebrate Earth
Day, the most popular environmental campaign in history, by Diving In, April
15-22.  This year marks the third year of "Dive In To Earth Day", an
international event that encourages people to join together and take action
to help protect our planet's aquatic resources.

Dive In is a fun, inexpensive and highly effective way to reach out to your
community and involve them in marine conservation.  It's easy.  Anyone can
organize a Dive In event, or publicize their water-based Earth Day plans on
the Dive In website. Dive In activities are organized locally by non-profit
organizations, dive shops, community groups, scientists, aquariums,
teachers, and other marine enthusiasts.

The Dive In Website (http://divein.coralreefalliance.org) has all sorts of
useful tools for organizers, for example:
    - How-to Guides to Organizing an Underwater Clean-up
    - An Easy to Search Database of Dive In Activities
    - Tips for Making your Own Event Press Release
Plus, the first 200 people to add an activity to the Dive In website will
Receive free Dive In posters, to help promote their event.  All Dive In
activities are automatically posted on the Earth Day Network website.

Last year, more than 200 people organized Dive In activities in 46
countries, engaging approximately 32,000 participants worldwide.  Activities
included beach cleanups, aquarium exhibits, reef surveys, children's
snorkeling trips, art contests, mooring buoy installations and more.  Among
those taking part in the celebrations this year include celebrities such as
Leonardo DiCaprio, William Shatner, Dr. Sylvia Earle, Dr. Eugenie Clark and
Stan Waterman.

Please be a part of Dive In this year by organizing an activity in your
local community, or by helping us spread the word.  Together, let's create a
common theme of marine conservation this Earth Day!
